X Factor 2013: Alexandra Burke teases, “My new album is coming sooner than my fans think it is!”
It’s been revealed today that former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke is hard at work on her new album, and the singer has teased that the new record is “coming sooner” than her fans had thought.
She said, “The album is coming sooner than my fans think it is. I’m working on it now…
“In the meanwhile, I’m looking forward to giving them something as a pure Thank You for their support before that.”
Alexandra – who as we reported recently split from her record label RCA – added to That Grape Juice, “I don’t want to put a tag on the music, but at the end of the day my voice is soulful so the music will always be passionate and soulful.
“I’d describe my ‘new sound’ as a ‘Whitney Houston meets Coldplay’.
“It’s pure, it has influences of pop, soul, R&B, even hip-hop – it’s really everything I love.
“But I’m making sure the focus is on my voice.”
Last week, Alex took to Twitter to tell fans how excited was to be about to perform her first US gig alongside Mary J Blige, Erykah Badu and Patti LaBelle in a show that honoured music legend, Chaka Khan.
Of the concert – which was on June 10 – Alex tweeted, “My 1st US gig is next week!!
“Catch me w/ @fatbellybella @maryjblige @MsPattiPatti @Jennifersspot to honour @ChakaKhan #LEGENDS!” (sic)
